The ScalpMed system is a hair loss remedy for both men and women. Because its active ingredient is minoxidil, different formulas are available for men and women. This three step program claims it is designed to address hair loss from every possible angle. The first step is Nutrisol-RF or RM (depending on gender) which is intended to provide nutrients to the hair follicle. The next step is Vitadil 2A or 5A (again depending on gender); this is the action step in the stopping of hair loss and the beginning of the re-growth process. This product contains minoxidil. Finally, a cortex enlarger is designed to increase hair volume. Together the products claim to lead to thicker, clean, and beautiful hair.

The causes of hair loss in men and women are often different. In men, typically a genetic sensitivity to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is the culprit. More commonly in women it is hormonal changes or medications that are to blame. No matter the cause, if you suffer from pattern baldness especially at the crown or top of the head, the makers of ScalpMed believe you are a prime candidate for their product.

ScalpMed Ingredients

Though ScalpMed is a three step process, it has really one notable ingredient that it focuses on – minoxidil. This ingredient once only reserved for use in men is now available to women in a lower dose. The maker of ScalpMed indicates that its products have a unique delivery agent that increases the amount of its ingredients that make it to the bulb of the hair where its action really works.

ScalpMed Usage

The products are not shampoos or cleansers. Apply the product to clean hair per the instruction on the bottles. The maker suggests that users give the products 60 days prior to determining if its effectiveness. Additionally continued use of the product is necessary to increase and even maintain hair re-growth. The morale of the story here is that if the product works for you, you cannot stop using it or you’ll lose all the progress you thought that you’d made.


The manufacturer offers its three step process as part of a 60 day risk free trial for $14.95. After the initial order, a 60 day supply of the products is $159.80 plus shipping. Wow! I guess once you’re hooked on the product that price might not be so shocking.

It is important for users to note that the company is proactive in charging and shipping out products to customers. Unless you return the product within the first 60 days, they will place you on an automatic shipping plan in which you will receive a 60 day supply every two months. The product will be charged to the credit card used for the original order. Some individuals may consider this approach useful and time saving, but many others will likely find this approach a major turn off.


ScalpMed is basically minoxidil, a very familiar product for many hair loss suffers. Given that there are better and cheaper uses of minoxidil, ScalpMed is just a waste of money! Curious hair loss suffers who haven’t tried minoxidil previously can pick some up at the fraction of the price.
